Cookie Policy

Welcome

Welcome to www.imodium.co.uk which is owned by Johnson & Johnson Limited. This Cookie Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding the collection of information from you when visiting our website through Cookies and other tracking technologies.

Overview of UK Cookie Consent Rules

EU law requires organisations placing cookies through websites onto visitors’ computers to obtain their “consent” after providing clear and comprehensive information about how cookies are used on the websites.

In order to comply with this, we have taken four steps:

Consent Strategies Used on This Website

European standards for obtaining consent to use cookies and similar tracking technologies (such as tracking pixels and website scripts) ("Cookies") continue to evolve and while prior, express consent strategies (or 'opt-in' strategies) represent the most legally robust solution for obtaining consent, they can impair visitor experience and adversely impact legitimate website data collection.

As an alternative, implied consent strategies enable us to infer consent where visitors do not refuse Cookies (or 'opt-out'), after providing prominent Cookie disclosures and simple, readily-available Cookie controls at a granular level. This enables visitors to accept the Cookies they are happy to receive them and to refuse those they do not accept.

The consent strategy that is appropriate for any given type of Cookie will depend on the intrusiveness of that Cookie, taking into account:

  • who serves the Cookie (i.e. a first or third party)
  • what data the Cookie collects
  • what purposes it fulfils
  • how long it endures
  • nature of the website through which it is served.

For Cookies requiring consent, we follow a three-tiered approach for obtaining visitor consent:

  • for Cookies of low intrusiveness: we make enhanced disclosures in the Cookie policy and provide an easy means to opt out of Cookies, and infer visitors' consent where they do not refuse Cookies
  • for Cookies of medium intrusiveness: we use the same strategy as for low intrusiveness Cookies and also make contextual disclosures about Cookie use at appropriate points on the websites (e.g. making Cookie disclosures around targeted adverts or other website functionality reliant on these Cookies)
  • for Cookies of high intrusiveness: we will implement a prior consent strategy (for example, the use of a banner / pop-up requiring visitors to consent to these Cookies before they are served).

Implied consent for Cookies: Cookies deployed through this websites are of low to medium intrusiveness only.

Cookie disclosures by type, rather than by identity: Given the substantial number of Cookies served through websites, the assessment in Annex A does not disclose and assess the intrusiveness of each Cookie individually. Instead, it groups Cookies by category (for example, 'advertising cookies', 'analytics cookies' and so on) and assesses the intrusiveness of each category, taking into account the specific features of the Cookies that are within that category. This enables Cookie disclosures that are simpler and clearer for consumers to understand.

NOTE: An assessment of the Cookie types served through this website appears in Annex A and provides information about its purpose(s), expiry and information on refusing the Cookies in “How to Block.”
